A new clip from director Joshua Michael Sterns’ Steve Jobs biopic Jobs has been released online, showcasing Ashton Kutcher’s Jobs trying to motivate his employees. The pic continues to looks like a TV movie and it’s tough to see how it brings anything new to the table. Pirates of the Silicon Valley covered the same territory in 1999, so if you’re going to make a film about Steve Jobs’ life, at least try something different.

We follow Steve Jobs (ASHTON KUTCHER) from the enthusiasm and self-discovery of his youth through his darkest days, brightest triumphs, and the ultimate power of his drive, his passions, and his undying will to change everything we thought possible. Dark, honest, and uncompromising, “Jobs” plunges into the depths of Steve Jobs’ character, uncovering his driving motivations, his gifts, his flaws, his failures, and his ultimate successes.
